I'm pretty sure you'll love it too, so check it out before the end of the year.
Holy fuck. OK, yes, that and Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt. 2 are must-listens as far as hip-hop goes then. My selections this year have been few and far between, but all highly acclaimed. Never Better, Jay Stay Paid, and Brother Ali's Us were the big ones.

Re: Woods, which track do you suggest hearing first? Normally, I'd happily dive right in, but I'm running a bit short on time here, as I need to re-listen to other albums as well.

Ah, that reminds me, I still need to give Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt. 2 a few listens! So much music, so little time...

Us is yet another very solid album for me, and Brother Ali gets better and better every time I give him a listen.

I'd say to go ahead with "Rain On," excellent song, just made 70-something on Pitchfork's Top 100 songs of 2009 list.

Thanks a bunch, Cassie. I'm glad this thread can be of value even without lists, per se, because I won't be able to contribute one for a while...I'm a perfectionist that way.

I still have a bunch to listen to before I can produce a list I'm proud of, but rest assured that "Watching the Planets" by The F'Lips will probably still be my Song of the Year from my current Album of the Year.

Oh, oh, oh...

Favorite albums of this year, in a somewhat vague order:

U2 - No Line On the Horizon
Franz Ferdinand - Tonight
Little Boots - Hands
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
Gossip - Music For Men
Metric - Fantasies
Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You

Albums I really liked, but probably didn't spend quite enough time with them yet to make the "favorites" list (probably because I spend too much time listening to my iPod on shuffle):

a-ha - Foot Of the Mountain
Royksopp - Junior
The Airborne Toxic Event - The Airborne Toxic Event
La Roux - La Roux
The Avett Brothers - I and Love and You
Noisettes - Wild Young Hearts
The Flaming Lips - Embryonic
The xx - xx
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
St. Vincent - Actor
BLK JKS - After Robots
Neko Case - Middle Cyclone
Wilco - Wilco (The Album)
Muse - Uprising

Albums that are pretty new, so not sure where they fall yet, but I really dig them anyway:

Lady GaGa - The Fame Monster
Norah Jones - The Fall

I keep forgetting to rank The Fame Monster. I'll have to give it another spin first. Only liked a couple things on it though. Which reminds me, is "Telephone" an official single, or was my local pop radio station just playing it for the hell of it? If it's a single, good Lord is she putting them out quickly. /Lances Mom joke somewhere in there.


Also, Cori, no love for Lily Allen? It feels like it'd be something you'd like...

Aw fudge, I knew I forgot something.

Yeah, Lily Allen makes it to the favorites list. That's pretty lame to forget her. Eh, it's what I get from pulling my list from my big-ass spreadsheet of CDs. My eyes started to blur.

Not sure on Telephone - I hope they make it a single, because it kicks ass.

Hahha, it's ok, I was just surprised that something pop related that GAF and I like wasn't on your list

"Telephone" gets better each time I hear it but I'm not quite sold yet. I will cry the emoist of tears if "Monster" is released as a single.

The only song I didn't like at first was Teeth, but the more I hear it, the more I like it. It's definitely unlike anything else she's done so far.

I hate that I know it IS going to be the next single.

Keep lying to yourself about how much you don't like her. Go on.

Lily's album rules

If I could somehow find a way to justify putting the 5 new songs on the Fearless re-release on my list, that would easily be in my Top 10. But I wouldn't know what to call it. The Fearless EP? I think that's what I'll go with.

Crap, I forgot another album for that second list: Pet Shop Boys - Yes.

And now ... my favorite songs! You can tell that my pop tastes mostly lie in a fabulous single. I cannot resist a really great pop hook. I'm a sucker for it. Woe.

U2 - Breathe and Unknown Caller
Little Boots - Remedy
Lady GaGa - Paparazzi and Bad Romance
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll
Metric - Help I'm Alive
La Roux - Bulletproof
Phoenix - 1901
Jace Everett - Bad Things (theme from True Blood)
Jordin Sparks - Battlefield (better go and get your armor, yo)
Lily Allen - The Fear
Royksopp - The Girl and the Robot (come back with another album, Robyn!)
Animal Collective - My Girls
Dirty Projectors - Useful Chamber
Britney Spears - If U Seek Amy (I know, I know ... it's horrid and juvenile ... but completely awesome!)
Franz Ferdinand - Lucid Dreams

Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" didn't make this list because while it was shiny and catchy, it was trying too hard to recapture her "Since U Been Gone" glory after trying hard to do her own thing and commercially failing. Poor Kell-Bell. It's a solid pop album, though. Just not as good as Breakaway.

Favorite songs is giving me a bit of trouble. Well, not picking them, but ranking them.

Jordin Sparks album disappointed me sooooo much. What a terrible follow-up.

I hadn't planned on buying Jordin's album - I didn't even bother buying her first one (and yes, I do own a good handful of Idol CDs. I actually want to get Allison Iraheta's as well - a few good pop songs surrounded by too many ballads, but those few good pop songs are damn good).

Then I heard Battlefield and had to have it. One or two other decent songs, and the rest is crap. I was disappointed with Don't Let It Go To Your Head, as the Fefe Dobson original is light years better.

Anyway! I'm probably driving everyone away from the thread with all my horrifying pop music love.
